    As per the release from the 125 Group, the loco started to show signs of a possible problem during the weekend. It has been stopped for investigation as a precaution rather than carry on running and potentially suffer a major failure.

    It will still be at the SVR, as will the 125 Group's coaches, but unfortunately 41001 will be on static display only.

    The whole team are gutted by this, but feel it is the correct course of action to protect 41001 in the longer term.

    A small selection from the gala, the numbers travelling certainly looked good for the first three days so lets hope the railway keep this back as an annual fixture . Congratulations to gala organisers Kieran Pilsworth, Tim Moody and James Horrell, it was an excellent weekend.
